The U.S. Supreme Court is rejecting Oklahoma's bid to revive a state law that the Oklahoma Supreme Court said would effectively ban all drug-induced abortions.
Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt released a statement to KRMG following the ruling. Pruitt says, "Given the Oklahoma Supreme Court’s overly broad and erroneous interpretation of the Oklahoma law, the U.S. Supreme Court had little choice but to dismiss the case. We are disappointed with the state Court's interpretation of a law that was crafted by the Legislature to protect Oklahoma women from potentially deadly protocols that have never been approved by the FDA."
Oklahoma is one of five states that are trying to restrict medical abortions by limiting or banning off-label uses of drugs. The other states are Arizona, North Dakota, Ohio and Texas.
